The first of these quarterlies contains Blackader' review of the Surgery of Head, Neck and Chest, Da Costa's Disease of Children, Packard's Infectious Diseases, Hektoen's Pathology, Turner's Laryngology and Rhinology and Randolph's Otology; the Second Surgery of the Abdomen by Coley, Gynaecology by Clark, Diseases of the Blood by Stengel and Ophthalmology by Jackson. Distinction is in the nature of things invidious when all this work is so carefully done, and moreover, judgment is probably a mere matter of personal leaning, but if any palm is to be borne, it would seem to belong to Hektoen. His is a particularly comprehensive summary and of special interest because of his consideration of the blastomyces, not only in blastomycetic dermatitis, but in its supposed genetic relation to carcinoma. As regards the latter, while he is not willing to deny that the intracellular bodies may be blastomycetes, he believes that most inclusions are formed by hyalin degeneration. Brá's absurd claims are dismissed with the biting criticism they deserve.
